REPENS

repens-for-word

This is a South African hardy evergreen small plant.   I first planted it many years ago in a very sandy bed and it really ran probably looking for food.   It made me nervous but it hasn’t run so much since in ordinary soil.

The foliage looks tough and doesn’t have the attraction of being shiny or furry.  It is probably that way to discourage things eating it in its homeland.    It is used medicinally.    Repens has 10cm spikes of pale blue flowers in summer and can be used as a stabiliser on sandy banks.   Flowers from seedlings  could vary a little.

It is cold and drought tolerant.   Repens sets seed or it can be propagated from runners.
